THE DIRECT CREMATION

A Direct Cremation (Essential Direct Package) is a cremation without any funeral service. The person who has passed away is transported in a coffin by us direct to a crematorium of our choosing. The cremation takes place behind a closed Service Chapel, and the ashes if required, can be collected by the family. There is no funeral service or cortege; no hearse, no family in attendance; just a very simple dignified cremation.

 

Our package includes collection of the deceased within a twelve-mile radius of Portsmouth during the hours of 9.00 am and 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday. Should the death take place outside these hours, an additional charge is made. We will arrange all necessary documentation, discuss with you the options regarding Cremated Remains, you have no need to visit us until the documentation is completed and ready for signatures. We then transfer the coffin at our convenience to a Crematorium of our choice where the direct and immediate cremation will take place. Once the Cremated Remains are ready, they will be returned to our Funeral Home ready for your collection.
